Seventeen-year-old Reina Dascoulias vanished from her home this week in Carlsbad, and her mother is calling out to the public to help find her. This is her first time running away from home, so it's not really known if she's safe or not. It's been several days so there's no telling what's going on in her disappearance.
The missing teen is 5'4" and 130 lbs., with black hair and blue eyes. Her parents looked at one of her social networking profiles and say that some of the things they read were concerning. In fact, the comments concerned officials as well so her disappearance has been upgraded to "endangered person" missing. What could they have seen?
There aren't any new details on the disappearance of Reina Dascoulias yet, but it's hopeful she'll be found safe and well. Unfortunately these cases aren't always so cut-and-dry. Just because Reina is a runaway doesn't mean she is safe and doesn't mean she is in good hands. Someone has to be housing her right now, keeping her off the streets, but who?
